17 Programs for Pain Research and Education Receive Funding

Sep 23, 2019

IASP is pleased to announce the 17 recipients of the Supporting Educational Programs for Radical Reform of Pain Treatment in Japan grant from Pfizer Independent Grants for Learning & Change.

IASP and the Japanese Association for the Study of Pain (JASP) solicited requests for proposals for projects relating to pain education efforts for healthcare providers focused on the needs of pain patients throughout Japan.

All applications were reviewed by an IASP advisory group, and the process was extremely competitive. Topics range from improving education among clinicians treating pain patients, introducing pain education into healthcare provider training, helping ordinary citizens to understand pain, and emphasizing the importance of pain education to policy makers. The results of these projects will have a significant impact on the pain research community and the public in Japan as well as the global pain community.

The program was financially supported by Pfizer Independent Grants for Learning & Change (IGLC). The mission of Pfizer IGLC is to partner with the global healthcare community to improve patient outcomes in areas of mutual interest through support of measurable learning and change strategies. “Independent” means that the projects funded by Pfizer are the full responsibility of the recipient organization.
